Increasing Poor Genes

Let’s look at bear hunting from a genetic point of view. Trophy hunters go after the biggest, strongest, healthiest bears. Unfortunately, those bears are technically called papas. These are the bears that provide the prime genes to sire the next generation. Hunting removes the best genes from the pool forever. Hunting is like reverse natural selection. Normally, predators preferentially pick off the sickest, weakest, most malnourished, most deformed individuals, thus pruning their defective genes from the pool. Normally the fittest survive. Now the fittest are shot. This drives the quality of the genetic stock down.

Conquering Nature

Have those loons who talk about conquering nature ever thought about what would happen if they succeeded?
